Dedication of the Hashknife Statue
Scottsdale Public Library.

Coinciding with the fiftieth anniversary of the Hashknife Pony Express' first ride from Holbrook to Scottsdale, February 1, 2008, also marked the dedication of Scottsdale Public Art's monument to the annual journey. In "Passing the Legacy," local sculptor Herb Mingery (pictured in front of his creation at the dedication with then mayor, Mary Manross) sought to symbolically capture the Old West meeting the New West by depicting a nineteenth-century rider handing off the mailbag to his twenty-first-century counterpart.
